“Cleveland's newest cultural gem”
Famed Slovenian photojournalist Ms. Manca Jancan spent a number of years in the last decade in Afghanistan and Iran in order to document the effect of thirty (30) years of war upon daily life. Her body of work entitled “Unordinary Lives” reflects the pathos and ravages of the human spirit but also the resilience and perseverance of the Afghan people. This exhibit, recently on display in Washington D. C. at the Slovenian Embassy, is on loan to the Slovenian Museum and Archives through efforts of the Consul General, Mr. Jure Zmauc. Heartbreak and hope live side-by-side in photos of orphans of war and working street children who support their families each day at market. Jancan’s photos tell the shadow story of the lives of Afghans as refugees without official citizen or worker status eking out survival in Iran, lost to their homeland, while other Afghans struggle to survive in tent cities at home as displaced persons.
